Hi Leo,

Thanks for your input. I don't understand though which part of the 3rd 
page of  the flyer you propose to replace by your text. In the current 
version, we have a data integration image, an abstract description of it 
(which might become obsolete, depends on the text on the 2nd page), and 
a list of testimonials. Even without the abstract description of the 
image, I don't think we have enough space for such a text. But... :)

I like the idea of the text. However, it gives too many details in form 
of concerete technologies, which is not the case for the rest of the 
flyer. Moreover, IMO it emphasizes a bit too strong the standardization 
within the SW area.

I think the message of your proposal is exactly what we need for a SW 
flyer. I would thus propose to lift and refine it a bit and use it for 
the 2nd (and not the 3rd) page of the flyer. IMO, this kind of text 
should be used instead of the current (or similar), non-technical story 
of page 2.

(Replacing the current story of page 2 with a text along Leo's proposal 
has nothing to do with the discussion technical vs. non-technical SW flyer.)

Best regards,
Paula
